The Edge Punk London

Rough edged aggressive new wave lodged somewhere between The Stranglers and London. Pretty good band. They also operated as the backing group for Jane Aire And The Belvederes. Lu Edmonds (guitars, vocals) was ex-The Damned, and later a member of The Spizzles, Public Image Ltd, Mekons, Shriekback and Billy Bragg & The Blokes. Glyn Havard (bass, vocals) was later in Jade Warrior, while Gavin Povey (keyboards, vocals) was ex-Lew Lewis Reformer. Their most famous member was drummer Jon Moss.
